Insomniac

Anastasia Insomniac Liquid LipstickAnastasia Insomniac Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a medium-dark, muted blue-teal with cool undertones and a flat, matte finish. The color payoff was fantastic with full, opaque coverage in a single layer. The color applied evenly and easily across my lips with a smooth, fluid consistency that wasn’t too thick or too thin. I very much appreciated that it was a non-traditional shade but still packed all the pigmentation it needed to have in order to go on beautifully. The color wore well for seven and a half hours and was a bit drying after five hours of wear.

Malt

Anastasia Malt Liquid LipstickAnastasia Malt Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a deep brown with strong, warm undertones and a flat, matte finish. It had intense, opaque pigmentation in one layer, but the consistency was a little thicker but still on the more fluid side, so it felt harder to control the color on my lips. I’d recommend wiping away some of the product on the edge of the tube before applying as a full pull of product seemed to be overkill. Luckily, the liquid lipstick applied evenly despite not knowing that initially, though it took longer to dry down along the edges. It stayed on nicely for seven and a half hours and felt drying after five hours of wear.

Insomniac is a lovely shade of teal with excellent quality! But I do have CP Getty, so I’m set with a great teal lipstick.

Malt would make for a fabulous nude lipstick for darker warm skintones, I believe!

I loooooooove Show and Teal but it’s no longer available on MAC or Nordstrom’s websites. 🙁

Any chance of you someday getting around to reviewing Sugarpill’s bullet lipsticks, Christine? There are a million swatches of their teal, U4EA, on insta and google image, but they range from comparable to Show and Teal to blackish teal, so they’re really not helpful…

Sorry, I don’t have swatches of those at this time! If I don’t have swatches, I prefer not to comment if there’s any chance or not since even something I thought I was going to review yesterday can get pushed to the bottom of the pile the next day (and never reviewed at all).

I hit “post” too soon, sorry. I was going to say this looks darker and maybe cooler, enough different that I want to get this version.

Oooh Insomiac tho…. I’m just about done with liquid lipstick formulas (my lips have always been dry, but now I’m sick of drying them out further just to have a color for a few hours), but that one is gorgeous.
